#2244493 UofM/NHL in Advanced Talks for Winter Classic

Posted by RusDRW on 12 January 2012 - 07:47 AM

To be honest who cares? let it be roller hockey in texas between Dallas and Tampa it just one game out of 82. For those who live in Detroit it could be indeed a good Evening. If they could get tickets of course.

#2227188 Babcock: "Do we want to be a good team or not?"

Posted by RusDRW on 18 November 2011 - 03:54 PM

it is interesting point I would say... Either the team will magically find a way to work hard or someone will be traded and/or Babcock fired.

PS I want the next seasons start ASAP. Something tells me we'll continue to "find answers in the locker room"

#2227168 Bottom Six Philosophy?

Posted by RusDRW on 18 November 2011 - 02:49 PM

Clarkson, Moen, Penner, Nyquist (that one in Dallas)... go after them instead of keeping Miller, Eaves, etc. Two trades may chenge the entire team.

#2225538 Mark Howe's Hall of Fame Induction Speech

Posted by RusDRW on 15 November 2011 - 01:48 PM

Mark How inducted to the HOF? Really? Perhaps it should be renamed to NHL HOF as it has nothing with hockey worldwide. In Sweden, Finland, Chechoslovakia and Russia and we so many defs that were WAY better than Mark Howe. 100 more that are not there.

PS still I understand for whom the "product" is made.

#2221939 NHL Trade Deadline Predictions

Posted by RusDRW on 03 November 2011 - 01:24 PM

We'll get someone like Cory Cross.

#2218889 This team screams for a trade

Posted by RusDRW on 27 October 2011 - 04:37 AM

The reaction is pretty predictable... We are 5-2, no reason for panic, etc. I'm not satisfied with the quality of hockey not with the current record. If this team is not going to change somehow (via trades or changing mentality) during the year we will see yet another 2nd round exist. Red Wings have all the skill in the world. What the current roster lacks is some determination and willingness to win. We saw it twice in a row with San Jose when we simply forgot to start competing until it was 0-3. And yes uninspired play translates to the play-offs.

#2218608 This team screams for a trade

Posted by RusDRW on 26 October 2011 - 04:39 AM

We have one of the most capable rosters in the whole league that can deliver in each and every game and all we get is clear lack of effort. I'm getting tired of all these after game quotes "We though we were prepared", "We just got beat, 7-1, so to start like that tonight, to me, is lack of preparation," "It was a disappointing effort. The coaching staff didn't do a good enough job; the players didn't do a good enough job."

We've heard such things so many times during the last two/three years. Where are the consequences? I think the real reason is that everyone on the roster feel too safe. They known that no matter how bad they play they'll never be traded. Starting from 4th line plug Miller to "superstar" Zetterberg. When intensity of the game is rather low we often win on a pure skill, when it gets higher like in the last two games we simply give up. To me this is pure lack of effort. If Bertuzzi or Zetterberg don't like to compete in games like this scratch them and call up Nyquist or Tatar.

PS For those saying that it is only two games (there are always a plenty of such guys) I recommend to watch some other teams. No team in this league gives up games so easily.

Doan would be perfect and, thus, won't happen. Another player I would want is Ales Hemsky.

I completely disagree, telling a defensemen to con

, Pronger has been pretty successful afterall.

don't hit Crosby anymore, please! Pleeeeease!!!! Pleeeeeeaaaaaase!

#2210815 Brendan Smith suspended for 5 games

Posted by RusDRW on 30 September 2011 - 10:30 AM

I predict 50 games overall for Perry and 30 for Getzlaf. Just beacause they pley THAT type of hockey. Half of the Bruins roster will be suspended soon and only Cooke will continue to do what he wants...

#2208303 Yet another lawsuit filed against Bert

Posted by RusDRW on 20 September 2011 - 01:21 PM

Same with Savard.

I thinks it is pretty clear to everyone who actually ended Savard career, when it happened and how it happened. I think the actual difference is that Savard was better player and earned a plenty of money himself. That is a bit unfair...

#2207563 Everyone has rejoined the team for skating...except one player...

Posted by RusDRW on 14 September 2011 - 11:37 AM

I'll believe Babs...just as long as he's not been working out with Andrei Kostitsyn. ;)

Kostitsyn and Hudler could be lethal together :) what's about something like Kostitsyn-Wolski-Hudler? Could be laziest line in NHL.

#2206248 Best One-Two Punch?

Posted by RusDRW on 05 September 2011 - 01:05 PM

Have to agree with this one. Getzlaf is a beast, Perry has established himself as a force to be reckoned with (despite still being a complete ******), and throw Bobby Ryan on a line with them, when healthy they are the most dangerous scoring line in the league IMO.

this. In addition, Getzlaf is the only player in this league I would trade any current Wing straight up without any hesistation. I would even add a bit trading Zetterberg for Getzlaf. Perry on the other hand is just complementary... Just like Clarke to Gilmore.

#2204503 Drury retires

Posted by RusDRW on 19 August 2011 - 02:04 PM

what a lucky guy... first pumping up his statistics plying with Forsberg then spending one relatively good season with Buffalo and then getting 7 times 5.
